Foxborough, Mass. –After leading the Lynn Classical Rams to a perfect 4-0 start to begin the season, first-year head coach Brian Vaughan has been named this week’s New England Patriots High School Coach of the Week.

Coach Vaughan, a former standout running back from league rival Lynn English, led the Rams to an impressive start with back-to-back victories over Medford High and Malden High by a combined score of 79-7, before notching their third victory; a 12-6 overtime thriller against the Revere Patriots. Last week, Coach Vaughan’s team was able to pull off a 21-19 victory over the Gloucester Fishermen in a nail biter between the two undefeated squads. The Rams jumped out to an early lead behind two touchdown passes from junior quarterback Keith Ridley, while Ridley added another score on a 13-yard run to give the Rams a 21-0 advantage at the half. Despite a late push from Gloucester, the Rams were able to remain unbeaten and atop the Northeastern Conference’s Central Division standings. Next up for the Rams is a date with undefeated Danvers High School this Friday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m.

Patriots and Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Andre Tippett, now the team’s executive director of community affairs, visited the Rams players and coaching staff Tuesday afternoon to present Lynn Classical High School’s football program with a $1,000 donation on behalf of the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation, in honor of Coach Vaughan. The visit and check presentation will be featured on the Patriots weekly television show, “Patriots All Access,” which airs on Friday night at 7 p.m. on WBZ-TV in Boston and will be available immediately after on

This is the 22nd year in which the Patriots joined the National Football League in conducting the High School Coach of the Week program, which recognizes outstanding high school coaches and promotes youth football throughout New England. The 2017 season marks the seventh year that Tippett has taken the award on the road to visit the schools that benefit from the program.

“What an impressive start for Lynn Classical and Coach Vaughan,” Tippett said. “Jumping out to a 4-0 start under a new head coach shows the Rams have bought into Coach Vaughan’s leadership. We wish them the best in 2017.”

At the conclusion of the fall, one of the weekly winners will be named the New England Patriots High School Coach of the Year and will receive a $2,000 contribution towards the school’s football program.

Giants center Weston Richburg blocked out some time for some Q&A with Post columnist Steve Serby.

Q: Do you think you can be the best center in the league?
A: I do.

Q: What drives you?
A: I think one of the biggest things is fear of failure. I don’t want to fail. I’m in the highest level of the sport, viagra 60mg and I could be content and just say, ampoule “Oh, I’m here, whatever.” But I think each level I go up, I want to be the best. And I’ve seen myself do things that makes me believe that I can be better. And I never want to get complacent with how I play. I’m real hard on myself, but I think it’s good because it keeps me getting better.

Q: What is your on-field mentality?
A: I try to get pretty pissed off, but like a controlled anger, I guess, controlled aggression. Because I’m a guy that’s gotta be making calls, and figuring out what’s going on, reading things. But then I’ve also gotta be able to come out and put my pads onto somebody, move some guys around. I would probably call it controlled aggression.

Q: How different do you have to be on the field?
A: I’m a Christian and I believe that we should love people … you should serve people. And that’s something I really gotta work on, on the field. Some people think Christians aren’t gonna play hard, they’re not gonna get after people. But I don’t believe that at all. I think I’ve gotta go out and be intense, super intense, and just be relentless. I always think how if Jesus was a football player, how would he play? He would be dominating people. I’m supposed to be an imitator of what he did when he was on earth. So I’m trying to go out there, be intense as I can, and I gotta keep my mouth shut. Just go play ball. ’Cause there’s gonna be words said and stuff, just go play ball, that’s my job, do that, and get out of there.
